The use of inhibitors is effective in preventing internal corrosion. Inhibitors are substances (mostly chemicals) that prevent corrosion when put in pipelines. Inhibitors work in three main ways. They form a shielding layer from their reaction with the metal surface or adsorb onto the surface of the pipelines. In addition, the interaction of inhibitors with the corrosive agents may reduce their corrosiveness. The efficacy of this method requires that the inhibitors are adequately distributed in all phases present in the pipeline (Achour, Johlman, and Blumer 1).
Coatings are used to prevent corrosion in pipelines. Substances such as plastic linings are fitted into pipesâ€™ inner surfaces. However, allowing any air space between the pipe and the plastic allows in corrosive substances hence reducing the efficacy of the method.
